I work extensively with real estate developers on litigation related to shareholder disputes, tax credit financing, and year-15 exit disputes.
The reason I went into law was to have an opportunity to champion other people’s problems. Ever since I was young, I was taught to stand up and help others when it was evident that help was needed, and I have embodied those teachings by developing a passion for treating others’ problems as my own. I put clients’ disputes on a pedestal no matter their background or walk of life. My family came from humble beginnings – my grandparents emigrated from Greece during and after World War II – and built their lives through small, family-owned businesses and with very little resources. I was taught to respect others, and also that success is what you build yourself; we make our own opportunities, and cannot take chances for granted. Litigation, for me, is about working as hard as I can to solve the problems before me, and using my instinct, creativity, and intelligence to get the job done. With these skills, I am able to cater to the needs of individuals and clients who bear a variety of problems and disputes, and relish every opportunity to do so. In my practice, I approach my work with businesses as if they were my grandparents’ businesses – with tenacity, dedication, and knowledge that often times you only have one shot at creating the winning case.
Outside of work, I love all Minnesota sports, especially the Vikings, and seek out anything to do with camping and being outdoors. I also love to cook, experiment with new recipes, and enjoy spending time with family and friends, which often takes place around the dinner table.
